Thank you for your interest in The Barrow Group’s Apprentice Program. Applications are reviewed each year beginning in May and auditions are held June through August.

The Barrow Group One Year Apprentice Program is a year-long acting program taught by Artistic Directors Seth Barrish and Lee Brock. Apprentice members exchange work study hours for class time.

Work training begins the end of August; classes start in September and culminate in an industry showcase the following September. Class occurs each week on Thursday from 11AM-2:30PM.

The Apprenticeship is for New York actors looking for continued training in scene study, monologues, on-camera film & TV, Shakespeare, and script analysis. Other Barrow Group Master teachers also contribute to the training throughout the year. Performance opportunities include a monologue showcase, optional self-produced reading series, and an invited industry showcase.

In addition to class work, Apprentices gain valuable experience in running an award winning off-Broadway theatre company, meet other industry professionals and refine their artistic goals. Accepted students are required to work a minimum of 8 hours per week at the theatre in exchange for their class time.
